Custom Fitting Single Length Irons
All human beings share the same skeletal, muscle, tendon, and joint functions and from a mechanical standpoint are the same regardless of height or sex. Non-mechanical differences arise in custom fitting however, for instance: the height of a bicycle seat needs to be greater for a taller person than a shorter person even though the mechanical design of the bicycle remains the same. By the same token there is only one true fitting variable in the building of golf clubs and that is club length. Based upon your wrist-to-floor measurement we adjust your club length to correspond to the lie angle of our club-heads in order to ensure a proper fitting.
Taking your Wrist-to-Floor Measurement:
The wrist-to-floor measurement should be taken while standing on a hard surface.
Wear jogging/gym shoes (not golf shoes).
Stand with your back against the wall at strict military attention. Place your shoulders and head against the wall, your feet together, and your arms rigid and straight down at your sides.
Hold a pencil in your right hand (right handed golfer). Back your arms against the wall and then take the pencil and make a mark where your left wrist joint hits the wall. Just the opposite for a left-handed golfer.
Measure from this mark to the floor.
Important: Do not round-up the measurement to the next higher inch increment. For instance, if your measurement is 34 and 7/8″, do not round up to 35″.
One Iron Golf Club Lengths
Do not order based upon what you consider to be your favorite iron (ie: #7 iron), and do not use that corresponding wrist-to-floor measurement when placing your order. When ordering you need to specify your actual wrist-to-floor measurement to ensure a proper fitting. This chart reflects club length based upon our club-head lie angles. Consequently, our fitting process does not apply to any other brand.
For the taller golfer: based upon your wrist-to-floor measurement you may be concerned that your irons would be a typical #3 or #4 iron club length; however, do not compare your measurement to your current #3 or #4 iron. The lie angles of your “long” irons are much flatter than ours which, at your size, requires you to bend over excessively and reach out for the ball at address. The club head lie angle of our irons is 63.5º which is far more upright and allows you, for the first time, to stand upright and much closer to the ball at address resulting in the ideal upright swing posture and swing plane. The taller golfer benefits the most from our fitting formula since they have never played golf clubs that have even come close to fitting them properly. The result being that they have had to develop a very inefficient posture and swing where they are bent over excessively and reaching way out for the ball with every iron in the bag.
How Does the Wrist-to-Floor Measurement Work?
It is based upon trigonometry. At the point of ball impact in the downswing, your wrist, the ground, and the club-head, form a right triangle. Assuming an ideal swing posture, there is a non-linear mathematical relationship between your wrist-to-floor measurement while standing at attention and your wrist-to-ground distance at ball impact.
The club-head lie angles are known for the irons and fairway woods as well as the length of one side of the right triangle based upon your mathematically factored wrist-to-ground distance at impact. This gives us the measurement of two angles and the length of one side. We then use trigonometry to solve for the hypotenuse or club length. This is somewhat oversimplified as we factor in shaft deflection and numerous other factors. The fitting formula that we developed produces the ideal golf club length for anyone regardless of height or arm length.

Steve Jobs created Apple to make “insanely great computers, then portable music players, the mobile phones, then watches, then who knows what. The mission was products designed to make the user experience “perfect, and totally natural and simple”. Apple is now the largest company in the world using that simple formula. 1Iron Golf brings that same total determination to the design and manufacture of golf clubs. I was sold after investigating it upon hearing the odd idea of “single length golf clubs”. When I investigated, I discovered that the idea is pure genius because it is “simple, natural, easy and logical”, like all the Apple stuff I already used. I have now purchased two sets of 1Irons, the Pro, then the Blackstone. Then I added the Woods, and then.the Dark Horse Driver, and finally the Big O Putter. Every one of them is a joy to use. My game, which was high handicap, has improved with both better distance and incredible accuracy. I have limits based on my odd swing, but 1Iron Clubs have allowed me to get the maximum out of very limited talent. I love these clubs, but more important I love the company and David Lake and Matt Lake and their incredible laser like focus on making golf clubs work with intelligent design, and high quality materials. Most important is the 1Iron Company focus on customer satisfaction. David Lake took serious time to explain to me the reasons for the design when I was thinking about the decision. That made all the difference. Then, after my purchase, the company has stood by its products like no other company I have ever done business with. I believe 1Iron Golf, and its leaders will not allow a customer to be unsatisfied. They are that determined to achieve the highest customer satisfaction. I will never even try another manufacturer. I am a customer for life as I try to achieve perfection in golf, which I know in my case will never happen. But 1Iron is a partner who makes me believe it is possible.
I recently took up golf and the 1st is are great. The feel is much better than the standard irons I was using. I only have to work on one setup and swing. Not a different one for each club due to the different lengths. I’m striking the ball cleaner and with more confidence. I highly recommend you try them. Plus their customer service is awesome
